[The world has been saved, hopefully for the last time in a long time. The celebrations - and the mourning - have started, and in a lot of places are still continuing. But the victory isn't the only thing to celebrate - and with a lot of help, and a lot of favours, Laura and Lily have extended an invitation to the Chalice crew, past and present, to join them. If you were nearby, chances are the invitation was hand-delivered by a dutiful Servbot.]

1. The setup
[With the looming deadline of the closing portals, things move quickly! Invitations are sent, travel is arranged, a venue is prepared. What had been the White Chalice's Arboretum - now an open-air grove in what's set to become a lush forest - is the site of the ceremony itself, while the celebrations afterwards will take place in Gucun. There's a lot to be done to make ready. Are you helping, or seeking out one of the brides beforehand?]

2. The ceremony
[It's only fitting that Captain Smith should officiate. He's waiting at an arch set up by the flowerbeds of the Arboretum, where the happy couple met, where Laura's tended her memorial to her friends from before the Chalice and to those who've passed on since. Between the Kwan daughters, Epimetheus, and a brace of Servbots you shouldn't have any trouble finding your seat, even if Xue Yi is a little preoccupied ensuring Prometheus behaves. There's some time before the wedding party arrive, to talk amongst yourselves - or with some of the other guests present, who include Laura's overwhelmed-looking parents!]

3. The reception
[Of course, the real point of a wedding is the party afterwards! There's food, drink, and music - Miki pulled some strings, and Pit's showing how Skyworld does catering. After the recent battle, perhaps this is a chance to see some long-absent faces in more peaceful circumstances, or to say goodbye. Or are you just here for the embarrassing speeches?]

[This is a joint mingle post, open to dropped and retired characters as well! For all prompts, please specify whether it's Laura/Lily you want to talk reply, or others!]

Recently, you may have heard increased frequency in news or reports on the skirmishes in Siberia between the Wolves and the Jade Falcon. The clanners onboard have been restless, even if many of them had been rotating back to Wolf City for periods of time. Ranna will send a vid-message to those onboard.

"We believe that the Falcons cannot maintain this level of intensity without escalating soon. The Clan is consolidating our Touman in Wolf City in preparation for that escalation. My Trinary has been recalled as well, for the duration of this conflict - the 4th Wolf Guards are expeceted to be in the thick of things. However, with the Verfolger, I am still able to join the Chalice on deployments if necessary."

This time, when the typical Clan Wolf dropship arrives for its scheduled supply drop-off, it did not come alone - escorting it are ten aerospace fighters. Furthermore, all the clanners are loading their mechs on the dropship, and even some of the Wolf Technicians are boarding it.

Ranna is there overseeing the transfer, disturb/talk to her?

[Clear the deck - on an unoccupied part of the Chalice's hangar, a magic circle appears with a ringing, ticking sound. It remains just long enough to let anyone in the area get out of its radius, then vanishes quietly - and in its place is a figure in a white cloak, one who might look familiar, and yet not, to some of the crew. She looks around briefly before summoning a screen in the air before her, connecting to the ship's network.]

Everyone - I am Agent Fate Testarossa Harlaown, representing the Time-Space Administration Bureau. I'm here to lend assistance and support Captain Takamachi. I hope together we can overcome the troubles this planet faces.

And to those I've met before, I'm glad to be back.

Everyone... I remember everything. It's over. We've won.

[Post-mission, Pilhua is destroyed. But so is the Over Being Father. And now there is a blue-ish aura around Texotic. Like a flame, tiny and barely visible at first but growing in time.]

There is something you need to know.
During their "games", Over Being met resistance. Rarely did their play go as smoothly as they hoped for. Their supposed prey fought - fought hard, tooth and nail. As we did just now.
The universe is full of humanity's brethren. Of heroes.

The threat of Over Being is over. What Teootl said is true. Just as Conetzin and Pilhua are creations of Over Being and cannot exist without them, so can Over Being not exist without Teootl.

This includes me. In a few hours, I too will be... gone...

Please do not cry for me. I...

[And she almost did it. Almost said it with composure and a calm face.

But no. Tears start to well in Texotic's eyes as she cries out.]

I will miss you all so much! I... I really wanted to stay with you for longer!

[Finally, White Chalice arrived in Orb. We will be here for a while, so make yourselves comfortable! Fortunately the oceanic country is a peaceful and prosperous one, so you can spend this time in comfort. Not to mention the high class hotel that was booked specifically for us to reside in - covering a lot of ground, with many facilities and easy access to nearby malls, what luxury! There's a giant Christmas tree in the lobby to put everyone in festive mood, and even though the climate is not exactly what you'd call winter-like, Orb mobile suits are flying around the place and showering it with snow a few times every day. Talk about dedication. Or wastefulness.]

[1 - general Christmas thread, mingling encouraged]

[The Christmas party will be a large and opulent one, with delicious food and plenty of important-looking people in fine clothing. Feel free to join in - or experience the holiday on your own pace, especially since there is so many things to do! The whole shebang will last for more than just the Christmas days, so feel free to spread responses around time-wise rather than making everything happen at once.

Despite being clad in full uniform they're acting like ordinary people rather being ruthless or cold or cruel or vicious. They interacted with each other with the warmth and ease of camaraderie and friendship - light shoves, noogies, jokes and boasts with grins all around - or in one case just looking grumpily out of place as everyone's all cheery around them.]

[There's a familiar ship back in the hangar, arrived quietly and without fanfare - under the circumstances, it's not good to draw attention to advanced alien technology. And on the comms, one of the passengers -]

Hello, everyone. We're back. With some good news, which I should probably let Lily deliver.

But whatever about our news, I imagine a lot must have happened here while we were away. I'm relieved to see the planet's still in one piece, to be honest...

What have we missed?

[If you're quick on the draw, you might intercept Laura while she's still in the hangar, but the likeliest place to find her is in the mess - she's wasted no time in brewing some tea and getting a taste of home. The look on her face is somewhere between bliss and the verge of tears. It looks like Cosmic Ark had an effect on her, too, as she's still wearing what looks like an Angel Force-style outfit - though without the bulky metal armour, except for a small headpiece.]

Well. That's the end of that, I suppose.

For those who weren't present, I am no longer in line for the throne of Ruba. Really, when it comes down to it, the nation will be in much better hands with Magdalena than me. And don't worry, Isaac, I made sure that she'll take care of your family in my place.

I feel... relieved, I suppose. I don't have to worry about the succession contest anymore. I can just do what I want to do for once in my life. And, well, as it so happens, that's staying here with all of you.

That's not a problem, is it? I'll basically be doing what I was before, but instead of helping out as some sort of advance payment for future political gain, I'd just be doing it because it's the right thing to do.

So she's lying down on a bed, bandages wrapped around her right shoulder, left forearm, and neck. And for the sole person who has tried to betray the White Chalice to Kairos Aspada, things are...calm.]

After two sorties in two days, Ranna still seems rather serene as she parks in the hangar and climbs out of her Verfolger, shaking her hair as she takes off her neuro-helmet with one hand, a laser rifle in her other hand.

"The Word of Blake and this insane lady. Both ends of the technological spectrum, yet both fanatic crazy zealots,"  she murmurs even as Alexia Ward, one of her Trinary's Star Commander comes up to her to hand her a data-chip of sorts.

Feel free to talk to her though, it seems she is in no rush to read that as she stay in the hangar, checking out on repairs and the rest of her unit.

2)

Later that day, Ranna will be sending out a message to everyone onboard.

"I have an announcement to make - due to casualties suffered from the operation against Word of Blake, I have been promoted to Star Colonel, and will be commanding the 4th Wolf Guards Assault Cluster. As such, Trinary Charlie will now be Command Trinary. However, I shall still be staying onboard the Chalice as liason along with my Trinary."

"I look forward to our continued cooperation."

Yui was resting after getting patched up after dealing with being tied to a tree with barbed wire and being bled for a nightmarish eldritch apocalypse machine designed to kill everyone except for herself - in addition, that shard with its equally unearthly power had been jammed into her. Mad waited outside the infirmary, but looked more at peace than she ever had before... a sense of knowing her place in the world, of finally reaching her dream of heroism. She didn't need everyone to recognize her and admire her... rather... just the people she cared about.]

Dad.... Gregory... I finally did it... I'm a real hero now...

[ Caulder's awake, though he's still somewhat sleepy from the anesthetic from surgery. One of his eyes is covered by a bandage. There's a few minor cuts and burn marks on his face, but nothing that will be permanent. Maxine saw to that. He's trying to play a handheld game on his tablet to keep his mind off of what happened. There's... there's just no way ALICE would flip out like that. It had to have been Pandora. It had to have messed with her programming. ]

I can't do it.

[ He said quietly, setting side his tablet. ]

I can't. She was my only friend growing up... I won't do it until I know for sure there's no way to fix her.

Two - Brig



[ It's the first day Caulder feels well enough to get out of bed. He hasn't been eating much, but it wasn't due to the durgs; it was depression and stress. He's heading for ALICE's cell. They've partitioned her and her mobile server is disconnected from the ship, but... he's worried. ALICE is smart. He has this feeling that she's still got a few tricks up her sleeve.

You can stop him before he reaches it... but when he does, he has a few things he just has to ask ALICE. ]

Her little box mainframe is kept on a table in a locked room, and the only network link available goes to a single terminal outside the room, that's disconnected from all others. If you want to talk with her that means the only opportunity is to either pick the lock somehow and break in to see her (bad idea) or just walk past the exterior terminal.]

–The Gentleman's Defensive Theology Club Lodge. Leaning against the swollen (thankfully unbroken) head of one of Herb's idols Matthew is swallowing a measuring beaker's worth of a truly noxious cocktail, while staring at a worn Jade Falcon patch in his other hand.

"What now?" You can hear him mumbling to himself. "What the stravag now?"

[2]

Later on, a more determined, if still gently swaying Matthew can be found wandering the halls of the White Chalice, up and down it's many levels, hangers, bridges, lounges, and greenhouses. To anyone he runs into, he takes care not to slur his words and asks:

"What do you think love is?"

A small portion of the open deck has pennants and banners heroically flapping in the wind, declaring the area to be a SCIENCE CONTEST. There are heaps of metal junk lying around, as well as mounds of sand, chopped wood arranged in surprisingly neat piles, and even science-y books and basic chemical apparati. What is the meaning of this?]

Listen to my words, oh people of White Chalice. Today, we shall participate in a mind-twisting competition to keep our intellects keen and sharp!

The table in the center of the room has ben left untouched, and has on it a small notecard, with writing in Yui's hand. It reads as follows.]

Okay, so I must confess that I have been... omitting certain details of the truth up until now. Let's go ahead and set the record straight, yes?

I am indeed the prince of Ruba, and I am indeed in competition for the throne. Every promise I've made for our aid, I fully intend to uphold.

The thing is... Ruba isn't particularly big. Okay, it's tiny. It's the smallest independent space colony in the Earth Sphere. So, at present, there isn't a great deal to give.

However!




Once I am king, I will be devoting 100% of my time, energy, and passion towards expanding the nation in population, resources, and renown. I had already begun this process before we met - my mission away from home is to acquire alliances, contacts, and resources for Ruba.

The very moment it is in my power to do so, I shall repay all debts my people owe. Until then, I would be honored if you would permit me to continue fighting alongside you in the name of a peaceful future for our world.




It is as he said! As Prince Leopold's formally-sworn knight and battle comrade, I shall devote myself to the protection of Ruba and the Earth Sphere, such that both may someday have the chance to propser in peace! Here, I shall act as a sword, willing to lay down my life in defense of the greatest or least among us!

[White Chalice passed several settlements and other places with people recently, such as Nino Island, right? Sounds like an opportunity for Texotic to remove her debt by working part time.

And look, she was really trying this time. No giving up before even trying it out. But, well... people who needed a nurse or a store clerk soon enough saw her misplace everything or trip and drop ALL THE THINGS, and whomever needed a cook had the misfortune of experiencing terrible, terrible things done to the kitchen.

So needless to say, whatever job the alien tried out, she didn't keep it for long. Now Texotic is tired and despirited, sitting on the regenerating Pilhua and doing not much at all.]

After retaking the Nicholas Kerensky...

1)
Ranna lies in the infirmary, heavily bandaged. A stack of books is by the bedside table, presumably for her when she is awake. She has been declared to be stable by the infirmary staff and cleared for visitation. At times her Trinary members can be seen visiting her.

Visit her?

2)

The Wolf warriors on-board the Chalice are in a good mood, that is certain. They go about their duties with a smile, and even those has been known to be...quiet are a little bit more chatty. It seems not even the news of all the landing forces making it to Siberia could stop the buoyancy of reclaiming the Nicholas Kerensky.

A dropship arrive soon-after, not the routine supply drop from those who are aware of the schedule, but it unloads much supply for the Chalice itself - food, materials and medicine. Furthermore, several secured containers are unloaded as well - marked for the Goliath Scorpions.

With Ranna currently in the infirmary, Star Commander Alexia Ward has taken over Charlie Trinary in the interim.

Speak with the clanners/check out the new supplies/claim your containers?

[The goddess-slash-CPU is in the makeshift dojo set up by Sam, having her own sword training session against several dummy targets set up there. However, instead of the usual skin-tight suit and armor post-transformation, Purple Heart is wearing a white and violet kendo robe that perfectly fits her slender frame. It's only proper, really.

But in spite of her enthusiasm, she seems a bit bothered.]

Following the mission, the island is swarming with scorpions!

Goliath Scorpion clansmen, that is. Nikolai's report on the island, its cryogenic chambers, multiple downed ships and mysterious motherlode (which he gave strict orders to not touch) caused a furor of excitement among his history minded clansmen. Now virtually the entire Heartvenom Cluster and its attendant support staff is there, milling about, investigating things with the sensor arrays of their mechs and armor, and of course carting away things deemed either useful or interesting with typical clanner frugality. Trials were fought for who has to stand on guard in case the Bonnes return, leaving a few Warriors as sulking, grumpy sentinels.

Nikolai is circling among them, helping the younger Seekers to evaluate their finds, resolving disputes (it wouldn't do to have Trials of Possession here, where they risk destroying the ruins, after all) and ultimately making the final say on what does or does not get carried back to the Chalice in the arms and emptied ammunition bays of the Scorpion mechs and elementals.

Hello White Chalice. I'm very happy to announce several things to you right now, the results of our mission against the mountain base.

First of all, The Stalker Fang is dead, permanently this time. Unfortunately it took her original personality, as Anna Fang, reasserting itself for this to happen. For a little while, she was the kind person the history books tell us she was. She rammed Requiem Vortext into Harrowbarrow, saving us and killing Wolf Kobold.

Second, Harrowbarrow contained the enormous, city-powered beam gun MEDUSA. It has been taken aboard.

Third, it also had plans for quick conversion of a large static city to a mobile one, derived from observation of the Yapan Exodus.

Fourth, both of the above were to be sold to an interested third party who would then have taken one of the world's greatest cities mobile and spread Municipal Darwinism at MEDUSA-point. Fortunately that does not seem like it will happen now.

Fifth, more secret documents were recovered from the base. Apparently they were developing a mag-lev system large enough for cities to use. We will be broadcasting this to any city that will listen. With mag-lev, there will be no need for cities to devour each other for fuel. Municipal Darwinism will soon pass into history.

White Chalice, I want to thank all of you for helping us get this far. General Naga has ordered that everyone who accompanied us is to be awarded the Wind Flower's Petals, Crimson Class, one of our more prestigious medals, and a cabin and forty acres of farmable land within our territory, if you ever decide to retire.

After sending that message, Oenone sits back in the arboretum, leaning against a tree trunk, her head tilted back. Something wet spills over and traces a line down her cheek, then another. It's tears of relief, for something that she'd been fighting for most of her life. And now it's over. Her brother and Stalker Fang can both rest in peace.

She feels lightheaded, empty, sweet. Where next? There are so many possibilities. The net is wide and infinite.

[Look at that, it's the unmistakable helmet shape of the Hunter-1 coming into the hangar. Samus is back in White Chalice!

And from the way she looks as she jumps out of her ship, however, she's not too pleased with this. she walks through the hangar with inhumanly fast steps. She needs to talk with Ayame and Dan urgently to know the results of their calculations about the incoming disaster. She doesn't think they have much time as is.

Intercept her?]

[If you didn't catch her right out of the ship, it's not hard to catch her later. She's atop the deck, looking at the sky. Can her Chozo senses perceive the thing she failed to stop yesterday? Who knows. But she looks like a statue there, and not of the nice, pretty sort. Rather more like the kind fearful primitives made sacrifices to.

If you want to have a conversation with her, though, this is probably your best chance]

Greetings to you, White Chalice. I will not waste your time. Most of my Warriors in the Heartvenom Cluster, the unit that accompanied me, are Elementals. As many of them will be dispersed to go Seeking all over Terra, they will not be able to operate in the five-Warrior points they are used to. They will be, you might say, out of their element, hahaha!

As such, I am seeking vehicular options that the troopers can use for increased speed and protection when closing with the mechs of the Earth Sphere, as well as to store the ammunition, harjel and neccesities of life they will need. There are two considerations I would ask to be top priority for this design.

Firstly that the controls must be simple and the cabin open at least at the top. Most Elementals are between seven and eight feet tall.
[He's 6''5 himself.] The armor itself requires even more space. And while we are all competent drivers, none of us are dedicated vehicle pilots.

Second that it must be stable. Elemental armor weighs three fourths of a ton, with at least another two hundred and thirty pounds for the Elemental themselves. This could roll a top heavy design over in a tight turn.

Secondary considerations include the presence of vehicle mounted weapons, cost, sensors, built in extinguishers and that the design can be produced by modifying an existing Earth Sphere vehicle.

I know there to be quite a few creative Technicians and Scientists on board and that the Wolves have benefited from their new Verfolger omnimech, which incorporates Earth Sphere technology. I am confident that between us we can come up with a satisfactory design.

Of course you will not go uncompensated for your work. Clan Goliath Scorpion always pays its debts.


[2]

In the dusty recesses of the unused vehicle hangar, he shines a flashlight down the rows of unused giants. He's not surprised at the lack of conventional vehicles, as he'd assumed a front line ship wouldn't have them.

Wait...There was the Clementine. He came over to it to examine it more closely. The cabin appeared much too small, but perhaps the chassis could be copied. Who was the original designer?

[3]

In the room designated for practice of weaponry, he cuts nimbly in smooth arcs with his zulkari, the two tassels (one black and one gold) whirling in miniature counterpoint.

As he came down from a jump, slicing a target he had set up for that purpose, he buckled on the knee he was landing on and staggered. Making no sound, he sheathed the sword, pulled the pant leg back, and knelt to examine the still pink replacement skin. Damn those Blakist flamethrowers...Damn his age too, while he was at it. Well there was no point bemoaning it. One compensated for getting older by getting smarter or one perished on unfamiliar ground.

After the attack by the Jovians, it takes Ranna a while to fly her newly acquired mech - the Verfolger - back to White Chalice's hangars.

Most likely due to the missing left arm and left leg, and missing half of its right leg. The 65-tons heavy mech hovers in the hangars with the thrusters flaring faintly as Ranna moves it steadily towards its slot. There is a certain jankiness to its movements that indicates the Star Captain's inexperience with handling a flight-capable mech. At the same time though, the jankiness appears to be smoothing out rather fast.

The Clan Wolf technicians attaches support to the damaged mech, holding it in a upright position before giving Ranna an all clear signal. She turns off the thrusters and powers down the mech before exiting.

"That was an... memorable maiden flight," the clanner comments.

(2)

Later, she can be found at the mess hall, eating while studying a bunch of reports, books and touchpads.

"This newtype phenomenon is quite interesting. And the man was so obsessed with it."

(3 - Vid/Network)

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lowe Gear for his immense aid in designing the Verfolger. Although it is still in the combat trial phase, I believe it will be a success and eventually marked for general production by our facilities.

Having seen the effectiveness of joint Clan-Earth Sphere technology, I would like to announce that we have also been looking into creating a new Aerospace Fighter. Any collaboration to help would be greatly appreciated and repaid in kind.

Clan Wolf does not forget its debts, however. If any of you wish our help in aiding you with designs or making modifications with Clan technology, we would be more than happy to do so."

[After the incident with the Beastmen and the sorting out of the issues with the Moonrace, Mad's been working in the hangar - surprisingly though, it wasn't with the Lambda.]

Alright... where'd those notes go?

[Mad was more or less helping with any maintainence and repairs anyone else needed before going to help check over her own personal machine - she also has a few notes that fellow mechanics had helpfully made for anybody working with tech they're not sure about. She backs off from an open panel and wipes her forehead carefully.]

Think I got this right?

"What is this? I have not seen you before. ASF Program?"

[She takes a walk around the crate, looking for something to open it.]

"And Who got you? I think being technically dead makes a dent in my paycheck...It had to come from somewhere?"

[2]

[On a break from helping the repair crews, Your friendly neighborhood Pilot is looking in the supply room. She is looking for a New flight suit, or a suitable replacement. She takes a look at a Zeon Normal Suit.]

"Hmmm...If only it had some pockets. A utility belt would not help when ejecting."

[During the fight against the inspectors, she had been reunited with G forces. She almost blacked out in 9 gee acceleration in civilian clothes. She almost had to be carried back afterwords. ]

[If anything, Nia has had a wild last few days! There was the whole thing with suddenly discovering there were more people who looked like her, the Generals whom she once respected turning on her and holding her hostage and last (but not at all least) finding herself amongst the others at the White Chalice.

...Which she'd marvel at just a little more if it wasn't for the holes in the White Chalice itself.

This just wouldn't do at all!

If you're looking for a certain pink, cloud haired ray of sunshine she's most likely trying to snoop around (just a little) to try and assess the damage whilst seeking information; who would do this to their fellow humans? Were they even human? This is all so terrible!]


[ 2 | Network Video ]

[If one thing is clear, Nia has found someone to help her with the recording of the video. Whilst her eyes jump from the camera to behind it, her voice is soft as it queries.] Is it on?

[...Yes, it is.]

Hail fellows, well met! I am the first princess, daughter of the Spiral King Lordgenome, Nia Teppelin. It is a pleasure to speak to you all.

I was talking to the others when we heard of your plight and insisted that it is our duty as fellow humans to aid you all. It is our duty to overcome the struggles the bad guys place in front of us by... ah... what was it that Mr. Kittan said? Ah! By 'beating the crap out of them'! And because it is our duty we made our way here as swiftly as we could.

Let's all do our very best to 'beat the crap out of the bad guys'!

[Roux couldn't help but look over the ruins of the Mobile Doll system, mostly in confusion. When she and Patrick snatched it months ago, the Inspector that attacked them let them have it, saying that it didn't matter. Yet, this Wendolo guy goes and destroys it. It didn't make sense...]

It's like they're contradicting each other. One person says or acts one way and the other does differently. The only thing I can think of right now is that us stopping the Festum using this scared them into destroying this.

That, or they'd been wanting to take it and with everyone jumping on top of him, he got fed up and destroyed it.

[She can't help but sigh, though.]

Though, I can't help but feel like I jinxed us - they replicated Aeon, the MEGAS and Black Getter and two of those three are insanely powerful.

[In the wake of the attack and all the damage the Chalice has suffered, the mechanics are working overtime to try to get the ship patched up, along with all the machines that were wrecked but still salvageable.  And for this end, Lynn and R were making great use of the latter's excellent articulation while piloting the VeHA.]

A little higher, R!  Alright... now keep it steady!

[After all, why use cranes and the like to precariously position large pieces of metal plating when you could have a machine that was sorta meant for that kind of thing to help with it?  It was easy enough for the VeHA to help out in the repairs, and its small size helped even with patching up some of the damaged mechs too, and with R in control the machine's fingers moved fluidly enough to conduct repairs on a much larger scale than any human could hope to achieve on their own.  They're certainly proving to be a good team.]

After the recent sortie to the Himalayas...

(1 - via network/vid)

"Most of the data we obtained are still being decrypted, but we managed to obtain technical data on the unidentified Word of Blake OmniMechs. It appears that they were of a recent design and construction. The Blakists named them the Celestial series. We fought the Malak, Preta, Grigori and the Archangel. There were data for two more that we did not encounter yet - Deva and Seraph.

They are OmniMechs, so their weapon loadouts are very flexible, but we notice that all the designs contain mech-sized retractable blades - a rare weapon in the Inner Sphere."

The mech data are appended to the vid.

"On an logistical matter, due to reorganization within our touman, my Trinary has been reassigned to the 4th Wolf Guards. We will still remain as the liaison on-board the White Chalice from our Clan."

(2)

Throughout the day afterwards, she will be at the viewing deck... painting. With a pack of painting supplies and some food, she finishes paintings at a decent pace.

Perhaps most surprisingly - she is rather good at it. Disturb/talk to her? The painting she is working on will change depending on the time.

[Mission over! But a new purple-haired lady returns with the group that departed for the operation earlier, while Neptune is nowhere in sight...what.

She's now standing on the deck of the damaged Chalice, looking thoughtful.]

...So, that's what I'd forgotten. A type of faith stronger than what followers can place in a goddess - faith born from companionship. I only wish I realized it sooner.

Regardless, I owe you my thanks.

[The same person is now walking (and occasionally floating) through the halls of the ship, generally inspecting the same spots Neptune did, like the Clubroom, but keeping herself moving as much as she can.]

It's been a while since I've taken this form. Even with the damage done here, seeing all this from a different perspective is strangely refreshing...

[1//Closed to people from 'The Sicilian Defense']

Dusty, tired looking, and if one were to be honest, a little smelly, the Goliath Scorpion Elementals climb out of their armor and dropships to stare in awe. Terra, that shining jewel, the cradle of humanity. A few fall to their knees, or run the pebbles and dirt through their hands. One or two are weeping with joy. Even Nikolai is smiling, though as the CO, he can't get too emotional over it.

[2]

Later, on the Chalice, you might find a rare sight: a middle aged looking Clanner. Though not as tall as most other Elementals, he still bulges with enough muscle it looks like he's smuggling boa constrictors under his skin. He's bent over piles and piles of books and a data tablet, learning as much of the differences between his Terra and the one he finds himself in now.

[3//Network (video)]

Said middle aged clansman appears on the network, grinning broadly. "Greetings to you, White Chalice, and a fine, though unusual ship it appears to be. My name is Nikolai Djerassi, of Clan Goliath Scorpion. We are a Warden Clan, and longtime allies of the Wolves, so you will have nothing to fear from us. I was called out of retirement to go looking for them. At least we can say we accomplished our mission, heh.

Among the Clans we are known widely for our efforts as historians. Thus I would invite you, if you wish it, to tell me of your histories. I promise it shall not go to the Chatterweb." He chuckles. "Even the juicy parts."

[4]

Now that they're here, the Warriors of the Heartvenom Cluster are mingling easily with their fellow clansmen already on board. The Scorpions are, taken as a group, even more rowdy, perhaps less disciplined, a bit more ragtag. Yet curiously, they still defer to the Wolves in pretty much everything, offering them first seats and portions. This embarrasses some of the Wolves, while others revel in the attention.

[Music for your consideration]

White Chalice cruises through mainland Asia when suddenly - hostile on the radar, coming up fast! It's an Inspector machine, and before anyone can react the whole ship shakes. Another one was hiding in sand, and is now pummeling the vessel with its giant hammer. To make matters worse, more of them appear.

"Thunder CRASH!" When your units sortie to intercept, they are attacked by a map-range weapon - this causes enough chaos to let the Inspectors break INTO the hangers. Hostiles on White Chalice, fight for your lives!

[1, outside battle]

"Come Darling, those humans cannot possibly match Silbelwind's speed!"
"..."

The super-fast Silbelwind and slow but ridiculously durable Drukin are doing their best to suppress any unit that tries to go out to face them. Fresh reinforcements have a good chance of getting a hammer to the face or being shot at by a long-ranged photon beam gun. Watch out!

Enemies:
Silbelwind
Drukin
Accompanied by mooks - mass-produced copies of
Aeon,
Megas XLR,
Black Getter

[2, hangar battle]

"Flee for your lives? You flee in vain - taste claws of iron!"
"Wait!"

The dragon-like Galgau was going to skewer the running engineer team, or perhaps burn them to a crisp with its breath - but it is suddenly blocked by Graterkin's shield!

"We're here to run interference and cripple their weapons. Civilians are not a target."
"Tch! Wendolo will hear of this!"

Despite their initial quarrel, the two units face to destroy all defenders brave enough to face them. And if there aren't any, they might as well help themselves to any units left in the hangar!

Enemies:
Graterkin
Galgau
Mooks, as above

[3, deep inside White Chalice]

"Hmm hmm. Is this where I think it is? Oh humans. You are as predictable as you are violent."

As the four Inspector machines cause chaos, the fifth one manages to enter deeper into the vessel mostly unharassed. Its goal? The Mobile Doll System! Will anyone stop it before it manages to either steal the system - or destroy it?

Enemies:
Dikastes
No mooks!

[WARNING! This log's fights are very dangerous and there is a high chance of taking very serious damage. Doubly so if you tag prompt 3.]

"Gentlemen Adventurer's Defensive Comparative Theology Club"

A sign saying "accepting new members" is hung underneath.

The door is open. Inside, hanging on the wall there are two big brass panels. One is saying.

"Membership:

The other sign is carved with.

[For those who haven't already met him - of which should be quite the vast majority - there's a strange guy standing in the hangar right now. He seems dressed like some of high school student, but has a hard hat on and is yelling at engineers as... a pink dome is lowered onto a portly robot's body? Doesn't look too great either...]

You've got the head facing backwards! And don't tell me you can't tell, it has thumbs!

[Unlike Devon's own initial reaction... Cheng is more subdued and solemn. What had happened today had proven that he really was no leader at all. No words of rage. No denials. No excuses.]

So... this was the final result in the end.

[He's merely seated somewhere in the Hangar, close by to the Fu Xi as he regards his helmet with a downright tired expression.]


[2] [Locked to CR only.]


I'm sorry...

"But.... why? Why can't we go home?! And why can't we stay with you and mom?!"


"Father..."

[Cheng's children did not take what little news that could be given to them that well. After all... finding out that you couldn't go back home... any child would be unhappy.]

Its so you can be safe... do-

[Nuan Chun rushes at Cheng's leg, pummelling it with her fists, sobbing all the while.]

"NO!  I don't want to travel the world anymore! I don't want to stay on a ship all the time! I want to go home!!... I... I HATE YOU!"


"Mei mei!"


[Xue Yi's quickly pulling her little sister into a hug, giving her father a worried look.]

"She.. .she doesn't mean it father....  she... she just..."


Its alright... I know... Look after your sister. The people here will keep you safe.

"Yes father..."

[Cheng turns around and leaves the room. Never once did he say anything to his eldest Daughter - who was crying as well... the moment the door closes... he slams his fist into the wall facing the door.]

Damn it...

[To be forced away from their home like this... he never wanted his children to feel what he did.]

[3]

[Cheng regards a camera with a stern face. He honestly doesn't know if this would make anything better... but it has to be done. Something NEEDS to be done.]

Loyal Soldiers of Gucun. Friends. Everyone.

Despite the blow that has been dealt, Han Zhi's command over Gucun will be short lived. While he has the loyalty of the people for now, they will slowly begin to realize that his rule will be no better than that of Jun Wei's.

I ask that you remain strong and prepare. To the brave men and women still in Gucun who have not abandoned me, thank you... I ask that you maintain vigil over the state, to protect it from itself as best as you can and ferret out Han Zhi's secrets.

To those who have been forced from the homeland, and to those who have joined us... I ask that you fight alongside the members of Bian Zoldark's alliance. To hone your skills and prepare of the day we can return to Gucun with pride - as liberators from a despot's rule - to prevent another civil war that would tear our homeland apart.

To my allies. I thank you greatly for all that you have done, and humbly ask once more for your assistance. When the time is right. Please help me save my home once more.

Thank you... all of you.

[Cheng bows his head as the camera clicks off.]

[Speak to him of his words?]

Damn.

[Despite the choice of icon, Devon is not in her Sophium armor. And that's the only reason the corridor wall she keeps punching is not dented yet - or worse. Instead, her fists look badly battered and at this rate she's going to break something.]

The worst scenario turned out to be true. In the end Han Zhi played everyone like fools... everyone. I had no business running a country! I am a warrior. That was a huge mistake.

Fuck.


[2]
[Devon is composed, but she looks tired and depressed as shit when she gives this announcement.]

Han Zhi's rise to power was not legitimate - he usurped it through force. The official State of Gucun government does not recognize him as a leader and will continue to operate from aboard the White Chalice.

[She sighs and adds something privately. The following is locked only to close friends.]

Also, my daughters have been moved to ReHome. This is for safety, in case White Chalice - or my family, becomes the target of an attack. Lowe Gear's crew made sure they are treated well so if you want to visit them, you know where to go.

And she just woke up.]

Wh... who? Coztic? Who is Coztic? Where is he?

[The rather... lightly clad young woman raises a hand to her eyes. And finds it wet with tears that just flow out all on their own.]

[Some time later, she is not happy about still being in the holding cell, to say the least.]

I must get out of this... place! Get out and enter Texotic Pilhua!
[She tries to bend the bars open, which obviously fails because well - normal human body.]
Do you want me to die?

[Okay, she eventually did get out. Or was let out, to be precise. Texotic is now walking around White Chalice aimlessly, like a drunk in a haze. She doesn't seem to be quite there, but at least she's not aggressive. Approach if you dare.]
